Snowless Belt

Posted: 17 Jan 2003 06:53 AM

Shown is a visible satellite image from yesterday afternoon. With clear skies, visible imagery is able to indicate areas of snow cover. The black belt running NW to SE in the state of Iowa is an area that has missed out on the two snow storms affecting the state. Without the influence of snow, this area was about 5-10 degrees warmer yesterday afternoon than the snow covered areas.
